The Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center recently initiated a new series of events that is certain to interest photography and art aficionados. The "Fridays in Photography " Lecture Series features presentations on the Center's world-renowned photography collections. The programs are presented by curators and guest speakers, and cover a broad range of subjects to provide insight into the personalities, methods, and movements within the history of photography. Bringing the excitement of a vast photography collection to a broad audience, this series enables visitors to view rare and extraordinary original photographs in an intimate setting and to participate in an exchange of ideas with experts in the fields of photography and its history.

"Fridays in Photography" presents four or more events annually at the Ransom Center, generally at 3 p.m. on selected Fridays. These include such topics as: discussions about particular photographic holdings within the Center; the history of photography; print collecting and appreciation; discussions with a photographer or individual in the field; acquisitions and collection building; and photographic conservation.
